We need to draft a QB in round 1 for once.

He has a great arm ( something Flynn doesn't) he's also a great leader and knows our system well

He has good upside as well

Also is a better prospect then locker and ponder from last years draft

It's time to take a chance, draft a QB first and add the rest with later picks. Weeden also is a very impressive guy.

Here's the issue with Ryan Tannehill...

Robert Griffin III had only 6 interceptions all year last season. Ryan Tannehill, on the other hand, threw 3 picks against Texas, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State, three of the toughest defenses he faced last season. So, again, Griffin had 6 interceptions all season. Tannehill had 9 interceptions in 3 games against tough defenses.

We need to take a chance. What do we have to lose? The whole fan base is already calling it quits and it's only March.

Tannehill is quite literally a Flacco (height and arm-strength) with Hartline speed and a Rogers mind (due to his OC being a phin now).
Anyways, Tannehill is well worth a no. 8 pick and I'd be just fine with us even moving up to assure we get him.

You also have to remember our OL is still weak for next year. We need a scrambling qb.

It really should concern everyone that

1. No one ever heard of Tannehill until Barkley and Jones decided to go back to school.
2. He is only rising because of QB needy teams, 2nd round prospect elevating into the top ten really, heck he hasn't even worked out this draft season.

Why do we HAVE to draft a Qb in the 1st round? If we reach and take one that is not worth it, it is WORSE than not taking one at all. Use this draft to get some playmakers like Blackmon, some stud OL to finally solidify the line, and use next years #1 on either Barkley/Landry Jones/Tyler Wilson. I'll take any of those 3 over Tannehill or Weeden ALL DAY LONG. You don't reach for a Qb simply because the bandwagon has emptied.

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
Height: 6-4. Weight: 221.
Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
Hand: 9.
Projected Round (2012): 1.
3/5/12: Tannehill is working his way back from a foot injury and couldn't work out at the Combine. However, he had his hand measured, and the number was alarmingly small. Tannehill's small hand size could lead to a lot of fumbles in the NFL. He is getting pushed higher into the first round because of the demand at the position.

Tannehill had some massive games in 2011. He also had some bad performances in the second half of games that contributed to the Aggies blowing big leads, and thereby losing games, to Oklahoma State and Arkansas. Tannehill threw three interceptions per game against the Cowboys, the Sooners and the Longhorns. For the season, he completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,744 yards with 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Tannehill is an excellent athlete and is very dangerous running with the football. Aside from his passing, he ran for 355 yards with four touchdowns. Tannehill has a strong arm with the potential to grow into an accurate passer. The senior also has special mobility.

Tannehill still needs to make up for a lot of lost time to learn the mental necessities of the position. The lack of quarterbacks in this class pushes him into first round, but he will enter the NFL with only 20 starts at quarterback. Tannehill has a special skill set, but he is going to need a lot of grooming at the professional level. However, the unknown of if Tannehill can handle it, pushes up the riskiness of picking him. He should be a second-day pick, but the demand for the position has seen his stock rise significantly.

Because the media types have been saying that we have to, for years. What they say goes...

his running back got hurt and his best wr had a terrible year with dropped passes.
